He oversaw Skipton enter the Help to Buy market, developed and launched a new build proposition, and oversaw re-entry into 95% loan to value lending.
Beavis said: “The UK mortgage market is going through an unprecedented transition, thanks to developments in digital technology. Mortgage brokers and customers alike are continually raising the bar in terms of lender expectations and the challenge across the sector is to adapt and evolve our products, policy and processes to deliver a lending proposition that meets these demands.
“Combining strong intermediary relationships and top class service with the advantages of emerging digital technology is a challenge all lenders face, and one that I’m excited to take on in this new role.”
In addition, the Skipton has also recruited a head of savings and partnerships products.
Maitham Mohsin, who lives in Ogden near Halifax, has been promoted from his role as Skipton’s senior partnerships manager, a position he has held since 2014.
Kris Brewster, the Skipton’s director of products, said: “I’m delighted to confirm the promotion of Alex and Maitham to head of mortgage and head of savings and partnership products. They both bring strong industry expertise, intense customer focus and a drive to embrace change in a challenging commercial market.
“These appointments further strengthen Skipton’s team and create more scope for us to collaborate and play a leading role in the world of mortgages and savings.”
